Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Your guy is suffering from colic due to the ingestion of a high carbohydrate food. The Banamine should be given every 12 hrs and you should give your guy Mineral Oil at 1 liter every 6 hrs. This will neutralize the gas producing bacteria that can cause his pain and help things slide through. You can allow your guy to lay down but NEVER allow him to roll. If he rolls, get him up immediately and walk him. If the intestinal tract twists, this could be life threatening. Keep up the good work and this may get yopur guy past this.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
